The world's supposedly second longest and highest sky-cycling in the premises of the Cliff Resort in Kushma of Parbat district has come into operation again.

The sky-cycling operated by The Cliff Pvt Ltd was launched four years ago but the service was shut down due to COVID-19 since 2020. The cycling is operated on a rope suspended in the air at 228 metres above the Kaligandaki River.

Raju Karki, chairperson of the Cliff Pvt Ltd, shared that two people can ride the cycle on the total of 600-metres route both sides at a time. The bicycles are tied with safety ropes with an attached handle adjusted on the rope like a rail.

The resumption of this adventurous sport is targeted to the domestic tourists whose arrival was increasing lately, said Karki.

Adventure seekers could enjoy the ride for Rs 2,500 per ride while those also willing to do bungee jumping and swing in the vicinity of the sky-cycling could avail discounts of up to 20 percent.

The bungee jump is claimed to be the second tallest in the world while the tallest one in the world from a bridge. The bungee is operated from the bridge that is 525-metre long suspension bridge and connects Parbat with the Baglung district.

More and more youths are attracted to adventurous sports in the later days, said Netra Parajuli, director at the Cliff Pvt. Ltd. A zip line service is also in operation near the Cliff Resort.

Bharat Poudel, a local from Balewa in Baglung district, opined that the adventurous sports such as sky-cycling, bungee jumping, zip line and swing here should also attract foreign adventurous tourist, adding it would help uplift the local economy.
